What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

You can't watch a cooking show these days without seeing a chef use a pressure cooker. Ever wonder how they work? The new generation of pressure cookers are much safer and easier to use than mom's (or grandma's) and deliver flavors and textures that cannot be achieved in a crock pot. Pressure cookers will transform your weekday cooking, allowing you to whip up traditionally long-cooking dishes 70% faster. Get ready for "back to school" season by trying this innovative and fun way to get dinner on the table in a hurry! As a bonus, the dishes we'll make in class can be altered in many ways, giving you a foundation for meals throughout the fall and winter ahead. All pressure cookers will be 20% off for class participants. 

On the menu: 
  • Chicken Cacciatore with Tri Color Peppers 
  • Braised Boneless Short Ribs with Egg Noodles 
  • White Bean Sausage Soup with Kale
  • Pulled Pork Shoulder with Asian Flavors
